Meg used to work for an event design company and has a knack for design. She helped create this beautiful Sonoma-inspired Summer Picnic and one of her first stops was @anthropologie ✨ • Even just a few detail pieces can add the necessary accents to any table setting. It's important to decide on a color palette, or your theme if you have one, and then go from there.
We loved this basic blush pink tablecloth because it added the right amount of color while also allowing other items to stand out! Other than that, we are big fans of having various height on the table. We mixed it up with tall taper candles, assorted glassware, a wonderful cake plate, and the perfectly matched book, Eat Beautiful by @WendyRowe 🥂 • Featured at @stylemepretty!

Meg and I just checked into our hotel for a San Diego staycation weekend to celebrate our 6 year anniversary! 🎉
Can you guess where we'll be spending the next few days? 🌴
Fun fact: the last time @megancrichardson and I were here was for Kelsey & Lee's engagement session 💍 Looking forward to some intentional time to really connect, reflect on this last year, and dream about what's next! #garrettrichardsonportraits #zeissotus #sonyA9

Rebecca & Michael tied the knot at the BEAUTIFUL @theinnatrsf this summer ✨ We were so fortunate to have this golden light pouring in through the trees just before they danced the night away. When I think of these two, I have so much joy because they are a couple who cares deeply for others, is intentional with their words and LOVES adventure. Cheers to MANY golden sunsets over your love as you step into the greatest adventure of all, marriage! 🎉#garrettrichardsonweddings #sonyA9 #TheInnatRSF #TreatYourself #soINNlove .

Let's get real... Have you ever been in an amazing place and come home feeling like you wish you had more time?

I can't tell you how many times we've made it to our last day of a trip and Meg and I look at each other as we're packing and say, "I wish we had more time!" It’s easy to spend more time than necessary stressing over all the planning, ie: what to do/see/eat, etc., instead of just showing up and choosing to be present. When we do this, not only do we miss out on some of the benefits of a vacation but we miss each other!

We love to get away but in times of stress and going after big things, we can find ourselves not at our best when it comes to communication about things that every couple needs to talk about….jobs, family, finances, sex, emotional connection….
** These conversations are hugely important and, if not done well, can lead to some of the biggest hurts we cause each other. ———————————————————-
One of our main goals at @sustainretreat is for our couples to step away from daily stress and to-do lists, and to step into intentional space to pause and actually SEE each other. ———————————————————-
This past June it happened for our couples in front of the Eiffel Tower and this January it can happen at the Pacific Ocean because SUSTAIN San Diego is a retreat that will do just that... give you and your partner the chance to pause and absorb all the benefits of a luxury vacation, as well as ditch the stress of planning in order to focus on each other and allow your marriage to thrive!

“Find my hand in the darkness and if we cannot find the light, we will always make our own” -Tyler Knott Gregson

My sweet bride, we've been married for six years!
Marriage has not been easy BUT it has been so so good. We've pursued some of our biggest dreams and trudged through some of our deepest wounds.
As I've discovered more about the way I'm wired, in an unhealthy state, I gravitate to avoid pain. And yet Meg seems to thrive in those places. Bill Johnson has said, “He or she who has the greatest capacity for discomfort rises the fastest.” As I continue to embrace my imperfections and seek to offer the best version of myself possible, I'm grateful to stand in a marriage built on truth and grit. Thank you, my sweet Meg, for fiercely following Jesus and for radiating light at times when it seems too dark to see. #sustainretreat #sustainmarriage #adventureswithmeg #richardsonsroam

Lindsay & Billy have a special place in my heart. Getting to learn more about their story and the strength they share in their faith is inspiring. So grateful for each couple's conection I get to preserve - these stories matter and will live on in the most beautiful ways.

I've never shot a wedding in such a BEAUTIFUL and empty destination as when I shot at @fshualalai. It was also ranked the #1 resort in Hawaii according to @condenast's Readers' Choice Awards! I love looking back at these warm summer images :) #garrettrichardsonweddings #konahawaii #fshualalai

"You are exactly where you need to be." Those may not have been my exact words in this behind the scenes shot but they definitely ring true with my heart for each couple I work with, especially as we prep for their first look. ———————————————————-
I have three main goals at weddings and one of them is to be as PRESENT as possible throughout the day. ———————————————————-
We often hear people say that a wedding day flies by but it doesn't have to. One of the most helpful ways to soak up every moment is having the ability to step back, slow down, and feel the weight of each moment.
*Why do we LOVE to travel?* Our senses are heightened. We smell, hear, feel, and see things differently because we're more aware of everything around us.
When we're able to process each part of the wedding day and truly connect with our emotions, our memory is that much stronger! I love the chance to be present with my couples and feel so honored to join them in that sacred space.
Thanks for the photo by @mikethezier! Ironically, I had this photo prepped to post today and my couple beat me to it last night! Great minds think alike @becky_woode! 🙌🏻 #garrettrichardsonweddings #TheInnatRSF #TreatYourself #soINNlove
